Quantum simulation aims to reproduce the dynamics of quantum systems by closely approximating the evolution of the system while minimizing the gate complexity.
State-of-the-art simulation algorithms that achieve gate complexity in $O((nt)^{1+o(1)})$ are based on the Lieb-Robinson bound and Trotterization.
We review these two techniques and consider how they can be extended to noisy systems using the Liouvillian formalism, which incorporates environmental noise into the dynamics of the system.
